Fruity and sweet with juicy tropical acidity.

Cupping profile: peach, tropical fruits, citrus


Ethiopia is once again among the roasters’ favorites, and their coffees do not go unnoticed. Burtukaana Danche #1 comes from the Danche washing station in Chelbesa, Gedeo. They buy cherries from 400 farmers who produce good yields thanks to fertile soil and good farming methods. This washing station has organic certification and is run by SNAP COFFEE, and its creator, coffee-passionate entrepreneur, Negusse D. Weldyes. 98% of the Ethiopian coffee farmers are smallholders with around 0.25-2 hectares of land. They sell and deliver their cherry usually to washing stations. These stations are either owned by or vertically integrated with an exporter. The Ethiopian government is the one that sets a minimum regional cherry price at the beginning of the season.

Incredible taste

This intense coffee is layered with mature stone fruits as peach or nectarine and tropical fruits. We found mango, plum or cherry notes… all dressed with a winey touch. Definitely an incredibly rich lot.

About the naming:
Burtukaana means “orange” in the Oromiffa language, and this is the concept we use to describe the flavour profile of this coffee. Burtukaana coffees are round, citric, with stone fruit notes, and good structure overall.

Wolisho&Dega Variety

Wolisho, or Walichu, is a Typica variety that has its roots in the legendary highlands of Ethiopia. The coffee plant is named after an indigenous tree, native to the Gedeo region of Ethiopia. Wolisho coffee is distinguished by its large fruits, tall canopy, stiff stem, and long leaves.

Dega is an ancient Ethiopian coffee variety that is cultivated throughout the country.

Natural process

Natural sundried, also called “natural process” or “dry process,” means drying coffee cherries whole without the intervention of water or machines to remove any of the fruit. Prior to drying, the cherries are picked, floated in water, and sorted to remove any under-ripe or overripe fruit.
